Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko's club is already the talk of the town even before its official launch.
This is because of the cash that has been sunk into the state-of-the-art nightclub in Shanzu, Mombasa.
Dubbed The VIP Volume Club, the venue boasts of gold-coated lion statues that also compliment the gold-coated toilets.
Sonko told the media that the club's luxurious and ostentatious decor cost millions and were been imported from different foreign countries.
The club's capacity is 15,000 people and a VIP boardroom where those who wish to have meetings while enjoying themselves will be able to do so.
The VIP boardroom is soundproof and once inside, one will barely hear any sound from the main clubbing area.
“The car park will have a 24/7 security surveillance and has a capacity of 150 vehicles,” said Sonko, who was forced to take selfies with fans for over two hours over the new year celebration.
Over the holidays the club hosted socialite Vera Sidika and her husband Brown Mauzo for the new year celebrations as a test run. Singer Tanasha Donna also made an appearance and staged a brief performance.
“We wanted Mombasa people and visitors to have a feel of what is to come. We have not yet set the official opening date, but it will be big,” said Sonko.
The club will serve "over 1947 different types of liquor. Most of them are imported,” said Sonko.
The dancing floor is made of bulletproof glass, which is lit in different colours, giving off an ambience never seen before in any Kenyan club.
“It has been constructed in such a way that it will be giving off a feeling like you are in a lift. There will be slight movement up and down because it has been made with a new technology that has never been used before,” said Sonko.
The extravagant club boasts stylish walls in Versace’s distinct style with Versace branding appearing in all the walls accentuated with the pristine white leather couches.
There is also a specially designed area for unique instagramable moments where revelleres and celebrities can take photos.
VIP Club Volume is a sister facility to Salama Beach Resort in Kilifi county and Kimerameta Safari Lodge at the peak of Golini Hill in Kwale county.
